Is It Weird Enough: Old Age And Treachery Edition

Conor Friedersdorf writes one of the best ledes in recent memory.
Four Georgia men in their mid-sixties to early seventies were plotting a biological weapon attack on American cities including Atlanta, according to a statement released by the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Northern District of Georgia.
I thought that people mellowed with age; apparently I was wrong. Friedersdorf seems surprised by the old folks' antics as well; he sardonically notes, "The advanced age of the alleged plotters is very unusual too."

Maybe this incident will prompt the educational establishment will rethink their emphasis on STEM. That science stuff produces domestic terrorists.
